I have a problem going on with my headphone jack. And its a pretty odd one if i do say so my self. So i had a pair of headphones that i have been using for the past year with no problems at all, but out of nowhere i start to hear a static sound over sound, and the audio is muffled. I then tested these headphones on my phone and had the same problem. I thought that my headphones were broken so i started to use a different pair, and after about a week of using them i have encountered the same exact problem. The sound is muffled, and i hear a static. Considering i have had the same EXACT problem with more than 1 pair of headphones now, ive started to think that maybe my computers headphone jack is messing them up. Because not only do they not work on my computer anymore, but they do not work on other devices as well. I have absolutely no idea what to do, do i need a new sound card? do i need a new headphone jack? (if that is even a thing). Please help me figure out what to do if you can.

If the headphones behave the same on another system, it is the headphones at fault, and it's a coincidence that two sets of headphones have shown problems within a short time period. There's nothing about a headphone jack or output that could damage headphones, unless the output is a very unusual one capable of enormous volume that can blow headphones out, but then it would also deafen you, so I'm guessing that's unlikely.
